It’s been a real privilege to work with Norma Gregory at Nottingham News Centre, and to learn from the company’s important work. She has generously supported our charity, and developed our learning, with flexibility, diligence and grace. Norma is a fantastic communicator, rightly passionate about her work, and I cannot recommend her more highly.

The National Miners Museum for England have been delighted to work with Nottingham News Centre on the Black Miners Museum project. They have created gateways into communities and audiences that we may not have otherwise reached. Norma Gregory, director, is very proud of her heritage and brings this enthusiasm and passion through into everything she does. She has made us think again about how we interpret our collections and would gladly work with her again in the future.

Norma has a passion for giving media coverage to pressing issues. What I really do appreciate is the fact that she really cares about personal individual journeys, taking quality time and patience to sit and listen to the respondent. Results of such are well-packaged and well-presented as evidenced by her online media content and broadcasting.
I recommend Norma Gregory /Nottingham News Centre to anyone looking for a reliable and focussed consultant to deliver a heritage project or other related projects in a professional and competent manner. Norma rescued our Carnival Heritage project in 2013 and delivered an impressive outcome that we never thought possible, given the short time she was given. She is a dedicated archivist with a passion for creating awareness about events and individuals that enhances people’s knowledge of local and national history.

Norma Gregory has worked in partnership with The Common Room as its Diverse Heritage Consultant since 2020. Norma has played a vital role in supporting the charity, to discover the diverse industrial heritage in the North East and how this has impacted mining, engineering, science and innovation. Norma’s in-depth historical research has generated a wealth of valuable resources from stories of Frederick Douglass’ visit to Newcastle in 1846, to stories of black miners working the Northumberland Coalfield in the 20th century. These resources are and will continue to inform The Common Room’s strategy of engagement and core educational programme, to support the charity in diversifying and challenging the traditional industrial narrative told in the region.
This partnership has led to a long-term relationship between The Common Room and Nottingham News Centre, which aims to decolonise The Common Room’s archive and tell the stories that are representative of all of the communities which we engage with.
